West Ham United fans were sent into meltdown on Twitter after rumours started circulating that Marko Arnautovic was ruled out for a few weeks with a hamstring injury.

Rumours suggested that Arnautovic felt his hamstring during the match against Bournemouth but continued and now he is facing a spell on the sidelines.

The Austrian has been in fine form for West Ham recently, playing a starring role in the ascent up the Premier League table.

But now West Ham could have to work without him for a while.

With Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup as the next fixture this coming weekend, Arnautovic was likely to be rested anyway but he might be out for the following league games.

After losing Manuel Lanzini to injury as well recently, West Ham are without their two main creative sparks in midfield and two of their main goal scorers.

Here are how West Ham fans reacted to this news on Twitter after rumours started doing the rounds.
